Hey dummies! These recaps are a day late because of Titanfall. Because I played Titanfall for the first time yesterday. A lot. I know the feelings toward the game have been more than a little mixed here in the Dtoid community but I for one am in love.
It's been a long time since I've gotten into a shooter, let alone a multiplayer only competitive shooter but Titanfall just offers everything I could want from such a game. You don't have to play obsessively to feel like you're actually competing with other players. You also don't immediately die every two seconds, and best of all, you have a giant ass mech to pilot!
The game just does such a great job of making you feel like a complete badass as well. There's nothing quite like running a long a wall and jumping between buildings only to jump from one, land on an enemy mech, and then hijack his shit and destroy the enemy team!
The team behind the game has also done a great job of crafting a world that feels like Halo meets COD but somehow original all at the same time. Having your commanding officer pop up on your screen to let you know that your titan will be ready soon really gets you immersed in the world.
I could go on and on but really all you need to know is that this is a fantastic shootman game that has giant punching mechs that shoot rockets. I'm going to be preordering this on my next paycheck and I'm gonna go play some more of it right now. If you are also playing feel free to shoot me an Origin invite, crackityjones205
So for this month's prompt, we should look to our best examples of scum and villainy. Talk about your favorite antagonists, villains, bad guys, and malcontents and why you like them so much. Certainly not because you want to be like them since the powers of law and order are probably keeping a close and watchful eye on us. But you know, hypothetically, if I were to recommend my own personal favorite villain, it might be Manfred Von Karma from Ace Attorney. The guy is irredeemably terrible, believing in not just results no matter the cost, but also a total disdain for nearly everyone around him since they most likely aren't as perfect as him.
For January's bloggers wanted prompt, just create a new community blog, start the title with "New Year's evil: [your blog title here]" and tell us about your favorite villains.
From the terrible like Flowey, to forces of nature like Gigyas. Go ham! We won't judge you since we're talking in hypotheticals. As long as we're talking about bad guys since Yoshikage Kira wasn't bad. Kira just wanted to live a peaceful life. He just happened to be a serial killer, you know?
